(The Sports Xchange) – The Seattle Seahawks might be moving closer to a resolution with running back Marshawn Lynch.
The Seahawks have offered him $12 million in 2015 and $9 million in 2016, according to reports Saturday by Yahoo Sports and CBS Sports.
Lynch is scheduled to make $7 million in 2015 under terms of the four-year deal he signed in 2012.
After the Yahoo report Saturday night, Doug Hendrickson, Lynch’s agent, tweeted: “Contrary to reports, there is no Marshawn Lynch deal.”
According to CBS, Hendrickson met with Seahawks general manager John Schneider in Indianapolis, site of the NFL Scouting Combine, on Friday night.

Both Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray are impending free agents.

Georgia running back Todd Gurley, a first-round prospect in the NFL draft, is six weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery from an ACL injury, according to the doctor who repaired the knee.
In an interview with ESPN.com, Dr. James Andrews also said NFL team doctors at the combine in Indianapolis were satisfied and that reports that Gurley would not let any teams examine him were “misleading.”
“I heard some fuss that Gurley wouldn’t let teams examine him and that’s just totally misleading,” Andrews told ESPN.com. “The team physicians I have spoken with who are there, and I have spoken to a bunch of them, were all happy about what they saw.”
